SIlly movie
28 October 2014 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

Get ready for two hours of second hand embarrassment, everything about this movie is just silly. I know that one is expecting a dose of juvenile Hollywood bullshit when choosing this kind of movie, but this one is of the charts, i mean, i was alone when watching this "thing" and i still felt embarrassed almost all of the time. There are children cartoons that have more mature dialogs and better thought-out storyline. The Ape humanization is an avalanche of, once again, silliness. At one point my thoughts kept pushing me to reexamine my life, i'm not kidding, near the end of the movie, i was repeatedly asking myself what was i doing wasting time with this crap. Good luck and happy sessions.
